Reiterating her “no mercy” policy toward criminals and terrorists
Sara Z. Duterte, the vice president and secretary of education, commanded the nation’s security apparatus to “show no mercy towards criminals and terrorists” on Monday.
Duterte stated in her remarks during her meeting with security officials that the security sector had received clear instructions on how to deal with lawbreakers and state violators, despite the fact that they had not specifically discussed insurgency-related issues.
“We reassure one another that the President’s Office, the Vice President’s Office, and the entire government support them in their fight against terrorism. They were informed of this in our prepared statement, which stated that there should be no leniency shown to terrorists and criminals, “said Duterte, who was appointed officer-in-charge (OIC) of the nation while President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. is in Indonesia and Singapore on a state visit.
She presided over the conference to assess the nation’s security situation and keep things calm and orderly.
Despite stating that there is now no threat to national security, Duterte emphasized the necessity for increased interagency coordination to avoid the “slowdown of national and economic objectives” brought on by forces that are motivated to impede the nation’s development.
“Our goal was to improve interagency coordination and collaboration on matters pertaining to the development of the nation and our national security. Hardline action should be taken by our government against terrorists, criminals, and those who support and promote their violent ideas “She spoke.
The nation’s second-highest official acknowledged that in addition to condemning crime and terrorism, they have also spoken about promoting the establishment of a mandatory Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC).
“We also discussed the ROTC, and ideas were shared with regard to ROTC, not just in Basic Education but also in Higher Education. Andun ‘yung mga ways forward to give meat dun sa declaration ng ating pangulo na ibalik ang (of our president to revitalize the) ROTC as a mandatory requirement for citizens,” she continued.
Goals to improve interagency relationships were also established during the meeting.
“We spoke with the (Bureau of Fire Protection) how we can work together to train our students. We reviewed the Camarines Sur teacher rape case with the police, including how to expedite the investigation and issue an arrest warrant for the culprit, as well as how to paano mapadali ‘yung inquiry “She spoke.
Four teachers were preparing for the start of the new school year last month when an armed man allegedly sexually assaulted them in broad daylight at an elementary school in Ocampo, Camarines Sur, on August 9.
The DepEd had already promised to provide aid to the incident’s victims and to maintain security in schools.
Other topics were discussed for each security department, according to Duterte.

The meeting on Monday, according to the nation’s military leader, is a part of the Vice President’s responsibility to supervise the activities of the President’s Office while Marcos is away on a state visit.
Lt. Gen. Bartolome Vicente Bac, chief of staff of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), said, “She just invited us for lunch because the President is on an official trip and she’s the designated overseer of the Office of the President so pinatawag nya lang kami, siguro mangungumusta, makikibalita (She called us just to just to say hello and get an update),”

Duterte was also given the responsibility of “supervising the general administration of the Executive Department” by the order.”
When the president is away from the Philippines from September 4–7, 2022, Duterte may “act for and on behalf of the President, save on subjects where the President is required by the Constitution to act in person.”
Additionally, the order mandates that Duterte receive assistance from all government departments, agencies, and instrumentalities in carrying out her duties as OIC.
